HANOVER, N.H. – After one day of competition at the 2018 Ivy League Indoor Track & Field Heptagonal Championship, the Dartmouth men’s team sits in seventh place with five points.
Taking place at home inside Leverone Field House, Saturday’s portion of the meet featured mostly preliminary heats, setting up Sunday with numerous event finals and the majority of points to be rewarded.
• The first point of the weekend for the home team went to sophomore Ethan Ruh in the shot put. Ruh’s 15.40m toss on his first attempt proved to be his best and earn him sixth-place and one point.
• Henry Raymond finished fourth in the 3000m and added four points to the Big Green’s total. Running in a relatively new event for the usual miler, Raymond posted an 8:21.48 on the Leverone track, a time that was fourth in the second section of the event as well as overall.
• After one day of competition in the heptathlon, Dartmouth student-athletes currently own the 3-4-5 spots. Junior Benjamin Ose is third with 2862 points, with classmates Ben Colello (2797) and Matthew Sindelar (2707) fourth and fifth, respectively. Penn’s Evan Lee (3060) and Anthony DeNitto (2884) of Harvard are the two individuals ahead of them.
